The Confident Eater

Create Confident Eaters

We give you the tools, the strategies and the confidence to get your fussy eater eating.

What we do

The Confident Eater has a unique program developed in NZ to support parents who have children who are fussy eaters.

Although based in Wellington we work with families all over the country (and the world).

Even if you feel that you have tried everything, nothing works and your child is very rigid in their approach to food we can usually help (our programs are appropriate for 95% of families – even those who are extremely selective).

Please, take the first step, check out what we do. I think you’ll be surprised how cost effective our programs are and they have been proven again and again to work.

Often just taking that first step is
a relief.

Full of information, inspiration and customised to you and your family situation. The Parent Program gifts you long-term positive results.

Tailored programs developed especially for you!

Our workshops give you the tools you need to make a difference and provide the framework to create confident eaters .

Parents and guardians armed with the right information are the ones best placed to make a difference in their child’s lives. Who is more invested, spends more time or knows a child as well as the parent?

Many of the recommendations are strategies that can be slotted easily into existing routines but deliver long-term results.

Picky Eating is an issue that affects everyone in the family. Taking action is never an easy decision but today’s solution reduces tomorrow’s turmoil.

To make things easier, we published two books!

Based on proven strategies, real life examples, both are highly visual and simple to use.

There’s Been a Seismic Shift!

Picture of a boy looking beyond

There has been a seismic shift in our family dynamic post our consultation with you! It has been an incredibly positive
experience for us.

We are pretty religiously eating breakfast and dinner
together which has been a really positive for everyone. The power shift has been hard for Oli*, 8 but we’ve definitely made some positive steps – he’s eating tinned peaches (his idea) on his cereal (after your amazing Jelly trick that you taught us) and has tried some banana.

He’s tolerating yoghurt again in his lunchbox which is coming back pretty clean.  He loved the chocolate muffins.

We understand this is a marathon and not a sprint so have realistic expectations.  Our youngest daughter Charlotte* has astounded us – she’s eating pretty much everything we present to her (so much so, she asked where the lettuce and carrots were at breakfast!)

We can’t thank you enough for the help you have given us so far.

My Confident Eater

The smile of success @ The Confident Eater

My son’s eating was on a downward spiral with more food becoming excluded as time went on. It was also more and more difficult to try something new.
This was causing me so much anxiety. He has now gone from resisting new foods, to confidently trying, exploring and appreciating what is being eaten.
Thank you Judith.

Judith is AWESOME and meal times are no longer a drama in our house.  We will continue to use her ideas to keep progressing and adding new foods and recipes.
Thanks so much Judith.”
